Risk and Problem Tracking

On May 3, we attempted to wind a four ply tube. Here are the notes from that test.

The high level takeaways from the test are as follows:

The resin no longer spills onto any vital components.

The payout eye has been moved closer and enables winding of much larger parts.

The wipers return most of the excess resin to the bath, driving the required refilling frequency down.

The crossfeed encounters belt slipping beyond 2/3 of the way down the slide.


On May 13th, another test was run with increased motor current, increased belt tension and smoother spool rotation. Slipping occurred. Below is a link to a playlist containing multiple video angles of the tests.
